Kudos to David Newton, Programme Manager at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), for his presentation of a case study featuring myhealthlocker™ in a June 10, 2013, HIMSS Europe webinar.
The webinar, “Facilitating Patients’ Access to Records,” was part of a series of seminars from HIMSS Europe. This session looked at what patient engagement “means for the role of patients and health care professionals, in an era where patients can take control of decision making about their care, using information available to them.”
Newton’s presentation, “eMPOWERMENT Programme: Delivering Electronic Personal Health Records,” reviewed SLaM’s work on patient engagement and the development of the myhealthlocker™ website — a system powered by Get Real Health’s InstantPHR™ platform that delivers an interactive and fully integrated patient engagement and care management portal for SLaM’s patients.
It was an honor for SLaM to be selected by HIMSS Europe as a case study for this webinar, and Get Real Health is proud to be one of the developers of this system which serves as a model for patient engagement and PHR systems throughout Europe.
SLaM has received positive feedback from patients and clinicians for the myhealthlocker site, and this award-winning solution is seen as an exemplary model for making health data available to patients in a safe and secure way.
